The Top 4 Destinations to Take a Cruise Planes, trains, automobiles…but what about a cruise? There’s a million ways to see the endless wonders of this world, but cruises have proved over time to be a fan favorite. But just how to do you choose exactly where to go? With companies like Planet Cruise giving us so many exciting options, it can be hard to choose! So we’ve done all you wanderers a favor and narrowed it down to our Top 4 Faves (with one honorable mention, hey! this was hard for us too), so we can help you make an easier decision. Happy sailing!   European River Cruise This is the perfect jaunt for the traveler who loves both the small towns sights as well as the big cities. Sail down the Rhine through the small countryside towns in Germany, soaking in the rich culture, eating traditional dishes and awe at the amazing architecture. Sail down the Danube and see the Hungarian Parliament building light up the river as you sail into this wonderful Eastern European capital city. Prefer the more traditional stops? Take a trip down the Seine through the City of Lights and see a new side of Paris. Grab a glass of champagne and handful of macarons and you really might just see it all. Whatever European river destination you choose, it’s a totally new experience of some of the world’s most favorite and cherished places. One you assuredly won’t be disappointed in.   Alaskan Cruise… View Post

The world is full of amazing places. And while we can hope to reach every last inch of it, we decided to form our backup Wanderlist based on each continent, so we don’t miss what we really MUST see before we die. Disclaimer: Don’t hold us to these, because as we learn more about the world, we add more to the list! Isn’t life funny like that?   North America: Half Dome – because, have you seen it? Grand Canyon – let’s be real, this is on everyone’s Wanderlist… San Francisco – Painted Ladies, The Golden Gate Bridge, trolley cars and rice-a-roni…need I say more? Route 66 Road Trip – make sure your playlist screams…”America!” New Orleans – Jazz Fest, the French Quarter, voodoo…sure it sounds spooky, but pretty rad too!   South America: Swim in the pool at San Alfonso del Mar in Algarrobo, Chile – not often does pool trump beach… Photo by Explorra.com Cruise down the Amazon River – because…piranhas. Brazilian Carnival – I definitely think I can dance like them. No, I’m sure of it. Machu Picchu – pretty much on every Wanderlist we’ve ever created…and not shockingly. Cape Horn – like visiting the edge of the Earth, surrounded by the roughest waters on the planet. YES PLEASE. Photo by Piet Barber – Wikipedia   Europe: Visit some of the oldest ruins in the world in Athens – sup, Zeus? Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower – because we’re not afraid to be a little touristy… Visit Prague – cobblestone streets, beautiful architecture…I mean, we have eyes. Bike around… View Post

After a little hiatus, a little website re-vamp and a little vacation, The Wanderlist is back in business. It has been a while since we’ve blogged, but with our fresh new look and all you wonderful social media Wanderlisters following us, we’re back and more ready than ever to continue travelling and crossing things off our [wander]List! Here’s a little peak at what we’ve been up to since our last post back in [ugh, sorry guys]…August. Well for starters, C had to recover from her two-week long summer vacation. Not that she’s complaining or anything, but after being gone for so long and going back to “real” work, it was a lot of playing catch-up. The Fall also kicks of her busy season, so that’s partially to blame for our mysterious disappearance these last several months. Stupid real-world work that’s only usefulness is to pay bills…so overrated. So here we go…a month-by-month recap of where we’ve been wandering…   August: -N conquers the Billy Goat Trail in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area’s Great Falls Park. -C is Southport, North Carolina visiting with family then road trips up to Duck, North Carolina for some fun beach bummin’ with friends. -N heads to Vegas and makes it out alive…barely. September: -N attends a wedding in beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia wine country. -C attends the US Open in Queens, New York and roots on Roger Federer and Caroline Wozniacki. -C makes a hometown visit down to Washington, D.C. for a lovely and long Labor… View Post

  Coronado Beach at Sunset One of the most beautiful places to watch a sunset in the world, this small island off downtown San Diego is a prime spot. Post up at the Hotel del Coronado and have a picnic as you watch the sky turn into a million colors. ​​SMLXL Hotel del Coronado ​​SMLXL Watching the sunset on Coronado Beach Bar Hopping in Gaslamp Quarter San Diego isn’t all beaches and hiking, there’s a great downtown area, with an even better nightlife! Interested in partying it up? The Gaslamp Quarter is perfect for a night full of memories you will probably forget 🙂 ​​SMLXL C with a friend at Vin De Syrah in Gaslamp Quarter Amplified Ale Works in Pacific Beach Not only is this a brewery full of some of the tastiest beers San Diego’s many breweries (they have a TON) has to offer, but the restaurant portion, Cali Kabob, also has food that is on POINT (I recommend the zucchini chips). You think thats great? They’ve got board games too to really round out your experience. And if you have a similar experience to the one I had, your waiter might even come back and play with you when they get off work! ​​SMLXL Zucchini chips at Amplified Ale Works Kayaking in La Jolla Cove A terrifying experience personally because I’m scared of the ocean, but for those of you that love the outdoors and a bit of an adrenaline rush, La Jolla Cove is a beautiful… View Post

At the end of o​nly my second day, I finally got what all the hype was about. Colorado is literally a playground for people of all ages, especially grown ups. After ​all the excitement in Vail and on Resolution Mountain, D & I headed back toward the Mile High City, with Chris and a friend in tow. ​​SMLXL C, Chris & D about to head back to Denver from Vail What’s the best thing to do after a long day of outdoor excursions, mud puddles and utter excitement? Indulging in literally the best buffalo wings I’ve ever had. Shoutout to Fire on the Mountain, for literally blowing my mind. If you don’t know this, I’m a bit of a wings connoisseur, and I live in New York, so the last place I expected to have the best ones of my life was in Denver, Colorado. But hands down, they were top notch. In case you didn’t notice, food is a big part of traveling, especially for us Wanderlisters. So after indulging and growing one pant size in wings, I of course had to wash it down with some of Denver’s best ice cream at Little Man Ice Cream. I got a chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich that was to die for and let’s just say by the end of the night, I needed to SIT DOWN. ​​SMLXL Ice cream sandwich from Little Man Ice Cream The best part of Denver, other than the weather, the food and the people,… View Post
